ChicagoLUG August Meeting and Hackfest

Time and location: Saturday August 24, 2013, 12:00 at Pumping Station One
Speakers: Bonnie King

We've scheduled our August meeting for Saturday, August 24th, starting at 12:00pm at Pumping Station: One. Early birds typically start showing up by about 11:40 or so. All are welcome.

Speaking Topics

Bonnie King will be giving a talk on Scientific Linux, a Linux distribution built from publicly available open source SRPMS provided by "a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor." From the website, "Scientific Linux is a Linux release put together by Fermilab, CERN, and various other labs and universities around the world. Its primary purpose is to reduce duplicated effort of the labs, and to have a common install base for the various experimenters."

Additional details to follow as we get closer to the meeting date.


As per usual, several of us will hack on GNOME-related projects, but feel free to bring whatever project that you want to work on.

If you need help with setting-up or fixing your computer, please let us know in advance so that we can plan accordingly.


Some funds for food and drink are supplied by the GNOME Foundation, but it's typically a good idea to bring a few dollars if you want to partake of pizza and drinks.

    Hey all, we still have one speaking slot open for our 8/24 meeting. Let us know if you're interested in giving a short talk on something related to Linux or Free and Open Source software. If we only have the one presentation for 8/24, it will be fine . . . another one would be nice to have, though. Thanks. : )
